Uncovered drains

Reported in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 10:27, Wed 12 September 2018

Sent to Edinburgh City Council 3 minutes later

The original uncovered drain - or whatever you call these with wires inside them - was reported at least 2 weeks ago and now there is another on the island outside McColl's. The original one is opposite RBS. This is just a serious leg injury waiting to happen that could leave permanent disability to the victim. The victim could also fall face down straight under the wheels of oncoming traffic - a busy junction. This should be urgently dealt with. If it is not the fault of the Roads Dept. then you need to contact the utilities company as soon as possible.
